I did weigh the bike without lights, and with summer High Roller 2 2.30, otherwise exact same, it is at 17.80 kg.

nothing funny about this bike, this is a great bike. maybe your comment is irony. of course I could put carbon rims, carbon seat, stem, install Cane Creek ee-Wings titanium cranks, a once piece CNC's cassette. so far what I have here works for me now, but a thing I want to upgrade is hubs, I want something with better engagement. So of course Onyx Vesper or I9 Hydra are some of the best options it seems. with stem I would not save much weight on, nor a saddle, but it all adds up, Cane Creek ee-Wings are the lightest cranks you can get now I think, even lighter than carbon cranks from all the common brands, unless there is some rare crank or custom option I forgot about or don't know of.

the frame is basically a DH frame intended for less travel, thus it's a proper enduro bike. larger the bike heavier it is, disciplines like enduro or DH require a beefy bike. I saw a pic of a bike that was crashed so hard on a jump that steerer tube bent, the rear wheel was crushed, but the bike survived. So I trust this bike to handle stuff I will never do. it's worth investing in a trouble free bike. My trek Fuel ex could make someone mad, so many issues it was much lighter, but it had air suspension, shorter reach, steeper head angle, short wheelbase, but long chainstay, geo, sizing was bad match for me.

this bike won't feel like riding a hammock, not will it be twitchy, it's easy to ride, cus it's so stable, so long, reach is perfect, and head angle is so slack, but as with any bike you need some getting used to, find the balance points, I am feeling at home on this bike already, with such a different bike, you just need some time, so don't let one test ride fool into thinking it's a impossible bike to ride unless only riding a trail, you can actually manual it, wheelie, make it drift, do fakies, throw it in the air, just like my previous bike.

Updated it, it's actually about 18.5 kg with this tyre setup of course it will be heavier with studded tyres. I have re calibrated the scale, so it shows closer weight, but I don't trust it to be 100% accurate.
this bike is beeefy yes, it's a large, so it has 515mm reach, but the reach and geometry on this bike makes sense, so it's a long bike, it's long, the bike is set up with coil front and back. for me it's important to have a durable, reliable, bike, so I don't mind the weight. and yes the tubing is thick, the down tube is the same as on G19, their DH bike. the seat tube is also thick, this is why it's 30.9 not 31.8.
the bike is stiff enough for me, it fits me great, it's planted, stable, corners great, very stable steering, the whole package is in a different league to my previous bike, my previous bike was very flexible, had plenty of issues, silly flaws, Trek does not even offer a frame in the reach I need.
to me G1 was the only bike that fit my requirements.

I got my pair of 3.0 and rode them for the first time yesterday. These are less like the Sam Hill five tens and more like a freerider pro with a few additional features. I run DMR Vault pedals and these shoes don’t grip. At all! The pins just float in the pockets of the sole. The shoes are...more

How do these compare grip wise to the rc tnt's? I was kinda disappointed in the grip level after forking out a huge chunk of coin for shoes I don't feel confident on. Cheers

Thanks for the info, might be another pair of 5 10 pros for me then. Cheers
